<font color="beige">Hello everyone,

I just received a PTW CD purchased on eBay.
It seems to work fine but I am unable to set the patches.

When I launch the ptw104.exe patch, everything seems to work fine until it tries to process the README.TXT file. It then says <font color="white"><blockquote id="quote"><font size="3" face="book antiqua" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">Patch Error - Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file content do not match.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote"></font id="white">
Would anyone know what to do with it?
Couldn't I simply try to find the "better" README.TXT file to copy it over the original?

Any tip would be appreciated!

Thanks</font id="beige">

I have had this same problem in the various times I have upgraded. I can't remember exactly but I think you have to drag a file across from the disk to your hard drive(the missing one I expect)before you can do the final patching. The patch it seems is missing a file which you have to find on your original disk. Don't give up, it will work if you get the correct file,compare the files on the disk and in your game folder and see what is missing. Good luck.

Great, it worked! [:D]
Thank you!

I guess I only needed some emotional support from someone! [^]
